The bread didn’t
rise enough
Did you add enough yeast, water or sweetener?
Make sure to add ingredients in the proper order: liquids,
dry ingredients, yeast. Make sure yeast doesn’t get wet
until the Breadman
mixes the ingredients together.
Note: Typically, bread made with whole grain flours
will not rise as high as bread made with refined flours.
The bread rose 
too high
Make sure not to add too much yeast, water or flour. Too
much of any of these may cause the loaf to rise more than
it should.

the bread
Possible Solutions
The Dough Program was selected. To bake the bread, choose
the appropriate program for baking bread.
Bread has an
offensive odor
Baked bread is soggy
or the bread’s surface
is sticky
Check to be sure you added the correct amount of yeast.
Measure carefully — too much yeast will cause an unpleasant
odor and may cause the loaf to rise too high.
Be sure to use only fresh ingredients.
Remove the bread from the Bread Pan as soon as it is
done baking. Leaving it in the pan allows condensation
to collect on the sides touching the pan.
Also be sure to cool the loaf on a wire rack; cooling it on
a countertop causes the side next to the counter to
become soggy.
The Kneading
Paddle was stuck
in the bread
Make sure the Kneading Paddle is mounted properly before
adding ingredients to the Bread Pan and baking.
Sometimes denser or crustier loaves of bread may pull the
Kneading Paddle out with them when you remove the loaves
after baking. When this happens, use a non-metal utensil and
gently remove the blade from the bottom of the loaf.
